Google eCommerce Tracking

id-google-ecommerceThe Google eCommerce Tracking module permits you to set up Google Analytics on your site to monitor transactions and page traffic.

Note: if you are using the 500 Framework parent or a 500 child theme, you have the option of using the Google Analytics tracking in Appearance > 500 Settings > Google Analytics Code or the Google eCommerce Tracking. Using both may result in conflicting or erroneous data; please see the Google Analytics documentation on how to implement multiple tracking codes.

  1. Activate the Module in IgnitionDeck > Modules > Google eCommerce
  2. Log into your Google account and navigate to https://analytics.google.com/
  3. Sign in or sign up if you don’t have an Analytics account already
  4. Create the account and include the information about your site to generate the Tracking ID (Google Analytics Property Code).
  5. Copy the generated Tracking ID.  The IgnitionDeck module automatically generates the Tracking script so this step can be skipped.
  6. Open the IgnitionDeck > Google eCommerce screen and enter your Google Analytics Property Code including dashes
    GoogleEcommerce_settings
  7. Save your settings.

For further information on how to use Google Analytics, please refer to the Google Analytics documentation.

Note: the Google eCommerce module currently only tracks Stripe transactions.  PayPal transactions are not tracked.
